. as bob woodward, one of the panelists said, it's like watergate twisting slowly in the wind. there is more of an opportunity to come up about him. if they do, he may be in trouble. >> eric: the investigative project came up with this and as you are saying this delay could then perhaps get more information to come out that could be more damaging quotes that he allegedly said. as you say eventually curtains for senator hagel the if it happens? >> well, potentially. at this point we have no indication every other an blog post. whether it is this or something else, there are a lot of people that are unhappy with the hagel nomination, they feel is too soft on iran. they will be working overtime and republicans blocking the nomination gives them time to do everything they can see if they can dig up more information that he has made. if they get it, it will go to senators opposed to his nomination. >> eric: people that support him can there will be a tipping point. what do you think will happen? >> again, unless bombshell new information, i think his nomination he will be confirmed

: and there is still finger-pointing over whose idea this was in the first place. in a "washington post" op-ed, bob woodward claims it came directly from the white house, writing, "obama personally approved the plan." white house officials have argued that the majority of house republicans voted to approve the sequester. as for furloughs, government officials say the majority of them won't take effect for about a month. lester? >> kristen, thank you. for more on how all this is playing out we're joined by cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. if we get to friday, they don't make a deal, do these cuts all play out at once or do they transpire over a series of weeks or months? >> they'll play out for a while, maybe not for a long while. even though both parties seem willing to let the sequester go into effect there's a lot not to like for both sides. if we see the effects like longer air travel delays you're going to see increasing pressure from their constituents to negotiate some sort of alternative. >> for the last couple of years we've heard about the so-called grand bargain. is tha
